Growing up, my parents always recycled - I remember going to the bottle bank and loving hearing the smash of bottles as they dropped into the individually coloured bins. I was always conscious of waste, but I felt that by recycling I was 'doing my bit'.

When I gave birth to my daughter a friend recommended reusable cloth nappies. I did a little bit of research into them and loved the idea, as nearly 8 MILLION nappies are thrown away each day - just in the UK! We then began to use cloth wipes instead of disposable wipes and I found that we naturally began to implement more and more small changes - reusable kitchen roll, utilising old jars and bottles, avoiding buying things in plastic, refilling our washing up liquid and cleaning spray bottles instead of buying new ones...

Our Refill Van journey is incredibly exciting, as it continually forces us to confront the realities of wastefulness and encourages us to learn and grow.

My life changed dramatically about 4 years ago and through that change I started to be more in tune with the planet and what we as humans were doing to it. It was becoming painfully obvious that as an individual I needed to change how I was living.

In the beginning it seemed all too overwhelming, until I started to break it down. Just changing easy things, looking at how I shopped and seeing how I could cut down on waste and looking at where and how the items I was buying were produced and packaged. I started to buy things without packaging where I could and as fresh and natural as I could. Little by little I started to change for the better and embrace what I was doing.

Today I live a fully vegan lifestyle, which has improved my health immeasurably. Cutting out toxins that I put in and on my body has been such a healing process for me and in doing so I have found that these changes have reduced my carbon foot print naturally,

I don’t profess to be perfect at all but I am doing my bit for this beautiful world we live in.

"We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly.

We need millions of people doing it imperfectly."
